Last week I had the honor of handing over keys to my clients and new McCormick Ranch residents Brett and Channa Abramson. They are the kind of people that you instantly root for upon meeting them. The home search for this newly married couple began almost 6 months ago and they were clear from the start that McCormick Ranch was where they were going to call home. While inventory has been low and several of the homes they showed interest in had multiple bids on them, in September we negotiated a great price on the 4 bedroom, 2 bath rancher on a tree-lined cult-de-sac lot, that won their hearts. The Abramsons love to entertain and with the large grassy backyard, sparking pool and spa, built-in barbecue and even a thriving vegetable garden, they are sure to make many memories with friends and family here for years to come. “There is something to this neighborhood that just feels like home.” said Brett after handing out candy to the droves of Trick or Treater’s in their new home Saturday night. Although they haven’t yet moved in, Channa shared that “We have already met many of our neighbors and they have been so welcoming!” While many families are drawn to the neighborhood because of the central location, great Scottsdale schools and close proximity to local attractions like Salt River Fields, Talking Stick Resort and Casino, Top Golf, McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park and the new 14-acre OdySea Aquarium set to open next summer; Brett and Channa love the local restaurant options, many of them within walking distance. They look forward to morning runs through the neighborhood parks and along the Greenbelt, Scottsdale’s treasured walking and biking path. With the great weather ahead of us I hope you will get out too, and explore some of what the McCormick Ranch lifestyle has to offer. If you happen to run into the Abramsons be sure to introduce yourself, you’ll be glad you did!
